Seven Extra Years


Today is Sharon’s 7th survivor anniversary. Thank you Sharon for your contribution of this poem to mark this meaningful day.


So long ago
Only yesterday

Everything changed
But was there all along

Eyes open
Heart open
Heart ripped out

Lost many
Gained so much

Keep going
Full of gratitude

Never forget
Life
